"There's no woman in the world worth tearing yourself apart for."
Joan Leslie loves Randolph Scott but marries wealthy Alexander Knox. The super jealous Knox isn't satisfied having Joan; he also wants Scott dead. So he hires gunmen to kill him. Scott survives the attack and is nursed back to health by Ellen Drew, who's in love with him. Once better he sets out to settle things with Knox and his hired guns. So-so western soaper has a nice cast but doesn't rise above average. Scott's fine, as is most of the cast. Hard to buy sweet Joan Leslie as hard and ambitious. This is one of those westerns where the good guy wears a bright yellow neckerchief and the bad guy wears black gloves. Watchable but forgettable.
